We are riding a wave. Rudi had a relatively quiet night, although mine was a sleepless one. This morning she's up and around a little bit and even wanted to go outside. She's nowhere close to being 'just fine,' but that's okay, she's here with us, and seems to be comfortable and not in pain. I'm sure that her system is absorbing some of the blood that's in her abdomen which is why there seems to be an 'upswing' in her mood and attitude. I'm just hoping that we can make it through another night and to my vet first thing on Monday. Many many thanks for your continued good thoughts and prayers that are at the moment putting us on top of the wave, and helping me come to grips with what I know is coming.
